There is a local restaurant not far from where I live that would routinely hand out almond lace cookies at the end of every meal when they delivered the check. Sort of like how Olive Garden gives out Andes mints with the check? Like that, only better. Fresh, homemade almond lace cookies to cap off your meal is such an excellent touch, and one that you don’t soon forget. As you may have guessed from the monstrous cookies that I typically make , I’m not usually one for delicate cookies. For these, however, exceptions are made. It’s hard to resist that gorgeous, see-through, brown butter-based cookie studded with almonds and oats.
